    In this episode of the Fit For Golf Podcast. I am joined by Dr Rob Gray.

    Rob is an expert in skill acquisition, which is how we learn and improve at things like hitting golf balls , kicking footballs, or tying our shoe laces. I was delighted to have him as a guest and ask him about the science behind swing changes, and how we can best set up our practice routines to make changes stick.

    Episode #34 - Mike Schofield - Rotational Power Expert

    In this episode I am joined by Mike Schofield. 

    Mike did his masters degree research on power development in golfers and his Phd research on the biomechanics and physiology of elite track and field throwers, which has strong relevance for golf. 

    Mike used to be a very keen golfer, being part of the NZ golf panel as a junior and having a +3 handicap. 

    He also has experience in speed training for golf, having increased his own club head speed from 110 to 142mph, which we dig into! 



    Mike’s knowledge and experience is of the highest level and I hope you enjoy his insights.

    Marty is the VP of fitting and performance for PING. He is also an exceptionally good golfer, having qualified for a number of major championships and PGA Tour events.
